Huddah Monroe is one socialite that I can honestly say can still surprise me. Yep, the woman who has a penchant for making crazy and outlandish statements still has some well-kept secrets.
But her comments this past weekend have many Kenyans shocked as the light-skinned lady revealed a facet of her life that most people could never have imagined.
Apparently, Miss Monroe is a foster parent to a girl for whom she pays school fees and caters for her basic needs. The Huddah Cosmetic founder and CEO said the girl has a mother and she only helps out with the finances.
“I adopted the baby because I feel like kids are very fragile and the kid’s parents couldn’t afford to pay the school fees. I used to ask this kid ‘do you want to go to school?’ and I saw her dream; she really wanted to go to school. I took her, she’s still with the mother but I pay for school and stuff like that. I love kids. I have my own foundation, Huddah foundation.”
Adding, “I started Huddah Foundation so that half of the money goes to my foundation to help kids, especially those that are disabled.”
Huddah’s wonderful act isn’t rare among Kenyan celebrities. Other famous Kenyans who have adopted kids that they are taking care of are;
Mike Sonko who adopted Gift and Satrine Osinya, singer Bahati who has three adopted kids. Media personality Caroline Mutuko has two adopted kids while Homeboyz radio presenter Shaffie Weru also has two adopted kids.
